Clinical & Operational Problems

Clinical & Operational Problems

Clinical leaders define challenges that patients and clinicians encounter in the healthcare system. Their frontline perspective helps prioritize projects, while ensuring a connection between clinical impact and delivery science.
Co-Design

Co-Design

Researchers experienced in delivery science co-design implementation and evaluation plans with clinical leaders and frontline staff. Clinical leaders and frontline staff assess the feasibility and impact of proposed solutions and identify and manage operational details.
Data Scientists & Statisticians
